They were absolutely fantastic when we first went to view the venue. They appeared to be very flexible, but definitely fell short. The sales office staff are great. The dining room manager we had was terrible. I am pretty sure I saw him twice during the wedding. Most of the wedding was wrong, and they did not provide everything we paid for. They put the wrong cake out, the tables were not correct. Everything was very late, the ceremony was minutes late because they lost the flowers for the flower girl. Dinner was 1.5 hours late. This venue was gorgeous, but the overall wedding was not the best because the dinning room manager did not do what he was supposed to do. The garden was perfect, the florist set this area up though!

The food was amazing! People kept coming up to me ranting and raving on how good the food was. We have been to many weddings and a lot of food is cold and dried out. But no complaints here, the staff kept bringing food out and very courteous as well. I cannot Thank Chez Josef enough for what they did! My day was PERFECT!

Food was good, the place looked great. I had some issues getting in touch with people in the beginning after we booked. Our dining room manager, Marc Sparks, was great.

Chez Josef was fantastic. My husband and I were amazed with the amount of work put into our wedding. Linda coordinated the whole wedding, from the outdoor ceremony, to helping us with the food and cake. The food was outstanding! The attention to detail was amazing. As a bride, everything was taken care of so I wouldn't have to worry. Overall, an amazing place to get married and have the reception!!

Chez Joseph is a banquet facility with a stellar reputation. The put the whole event together with no stress but it would have been nice to have more meetings with them through the process. I think bc they are in the business and they do weddings all the time they assume that they had things down but for us we were nervous and would have benefitted from more meetings in advance. Our meeting to go over all of the details was a week before at which time we made a lot of changes which was stressful a week before the wedding. Additionally, at our wedding there were little details that were very disorganized and mistakes made proving that more meetings would have been beneficial. I think the problem was that there were multiple weddings on the same night and attention to certain details were lacking. All in all, the day was great, the place was beautiful, the food was exceptional and we had an absolutely beautiful wedding. I am sure that noone but us noticed the little things that went wrong but we did. All in all our day was beautiful so I recomend them but I would demand a meeting to go over all of the details prior to the week before in case you want to change things and make sure that there are not a lot of other functions at the same time! All in all, they did so much right and the day was beautiful!
